Lost the excellent associate head of school who was clearly the driving force behind the school and several outstanding teachers and several administrators. Looks like people are abandoning ship.
Seems like if your child is not part of an unproven "Innovation Program", you are on the outside and given less resources.
Leaving after this year or maybe mid-year.
Good school. Very kind climate and very midwestern in its feel. Two of the best math and english teachers my daughter has ever had. Just make sure you get Mr. Sack for math. Mrs. Boyle for English. The two teachers helped my daughter excel in college and are remarkable educators. School has limited extracurriculars but more than make up for it in the character education and small town/small class size/small school feeling.
My son has attended Grandview Prep since turning 3. He is in the Early Childhood class with Mr. Behrmann. I love the staff at Grandview, the personal attention he receives, as well as the overall community of the school. In his short time there, I feel my son's social skills have flourished. He is happy when coming and going, and he enjoys the enrichment opportunities available. Additionally, I have been very pleased with the swim class after-care. In just a few weeks, my son has become a more confident swimmer, which translates to a more relaxed time around water for me! Although I only see the other children in a limited sense, I continue to be impressed with the older students at the school who know my son's name, hold doors for me when I am on campus, and seem to be genuinely interested in learning and each other. In a very busy area, Grandview is a breath of fresh air with a caring, nurturing environment.
